The Longest Johns

This Bristol-based a cappella folk music band were born from a mutual love of traditional folk songs and shanties. Rocking maritime songs alongside more unusual reworkings and less traditional folk tunes, this male four-piece takes harmonies to new heights, whilst retaining just the right mix of quality and hilarity and delighting audiences wherever they go. As the face of the 2021 sea shanty revival with their track Wellerman, the Longest Johns are reaching millions of new fans across the globe.

They will be supported by local artists Chris Ricketts & Gary Blakely who will be on at 7.30pm

Refreshments will be available to purchase before the event begins and during the interval. Seating will be provided.

Concessions apply to over 60s, and College/University students (ID required)
